Big Brothers Big Sisters of Helena

We make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (Bigs) and children (Littles), ages 6 through 18, in Helena and Boulder.  We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of  young people.
Through the generosity of a variety of funding sources including individual donors, corporations, governmental entities, and foundations we have the resources necessary to carry out our mission, which includes conducting background checks on volunteers to ensure child safety.  Donor support also allows us to provide ongoing support for children, families, and volunteers to build and sustain long-lasting relationships, which are key to successful mentoring.  Big Brothers Big Sisters is proven by independent research to improve children’s odds for succeeding in school, behaving nonviolently, avoiding drugs and alcohol, and breaking negative cycles.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the ONLY prevention program in Montana proven to affect a broad spectrum of risk factors (i.e. delinquency, alcohol, tobacco and drug use; teen pregnancy; and school dropout) while simultaneously helping children reach their highest potential.  As such, the return on investment is higher across the board than dollars invested in single issue prevention programs.

Capitol City Tire Factory

Think of your Tire Factory as the local tire expert. Because each Tire Factory is also an independent tire store, it’s owned and operated by someone who lives where you live, who cares about giving you the best service, and who makes sure you get the Right Tire at the Right Price.

Tire Factory is a group of independent tire dealers who have joined together to create one of the West’s fastest growing tire retail organizations. Through these united efforts, we’re able to stock the tires you need at the prices you want, and create opportunities for small retail tire stores to be successful.

At Tire Factory, you always find the top brand tires your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends at competitive prices. That’s because group-buying power allows each Tire Factory store to reduce purchasing and distribution costs, and then pass those savings on to you. So you can get Goodyear, Kelly, Dunlop, Nokian, Hankook, Falken and Yokohama—all the big names that the largest national tire chains carry—at prices just as low or even lower.

Your safety and comfort on the road are the top priority at every Tire Factory store, where our warranties, protection, and service go beyond what the large national chains can provide. You get the best of both worlds: Quality you expect, plus low prices you want. Visit your local retail Tire Factory store today and find out why you can Trust What You Love to Tire Factory.

Their branch leadership works hard to understand the needs of their communities and make decisions at the local level to help those communities grow.

On a day-to-day basis, their success depends on their employees. They endeavor to be the employer of choice across our three states, creating an environment where top-notch employees are rewarded with competitive salaries, opportunities for growth, and comprehensive benefits.

Though their buildings, technology, and communities may change and grow, First Interstate remains steadfast in following their founder’s guiding principles as they move forward.

Fresh Life Church

The Fresh Life Story

Fresh Life Church was pioneered by Pastor Levi and Jennie Lusko in 2007. From the very beginning the desire was to make Jesus famous and teach the Bible in a way that people could understand – utilizing every form of technology possible to communicate a message of hope. At the first gathering there were only 14 people present but that tiny seed of faith has grown into an avalanche of a move of God that exceeds what anyone could have anticipated. Through Network Sites, radio, television, online broadcasts, worship records, social media and podcasts, Fresh Life’s ministry spills over borders and infuses hope in people all across the country and world.

Though the church has grown and the dreams are big, the focus is intentionally small – impacting people with the shocking, life-changing grace of Jesus one life at a time. January of 2017 marked ten powerful years of Fresh Life, but the story has only just begun to unfold, and the half has not yet been told.

Mosaic Architecture

MOSAIC is a continued collaboration of Montana Architects, Ben Tintinger and Jeff Downhour that began 25+ years ago.  After establishing a new practice in Helena, Montana in 1994, the firm has evolved into the design driven and community oriented studios of MOSAIC Architecture.  With a staff of ten, including five registered architects, Mosaic’s award winning, regionally grounded work includes some of Montana ‘s largest urban developments as well as very modest, small scale homes.  MOSAIC’s studio is located on the historic Last Chance Gulch in Helena, Montana.

Through a design philosophy that is centered around the idea of collaborative design, MOSAIC is committed to providing our clients with the highest quality and performance buildings.  As architects, we engage all participants in learning about a place through its history, its people and its connections and together, envision a place that defines its own character. Our ability to solve problems, coordinate and organize the project team, and provide appropriate design has been the cornerstone of delivering successful projects throughout the Northwest.

Mosaic excels at bringing teams of people together to accomplish community projects. We take great pride in our project management skills and approach to successful architecture. That success is grounded in excellent communication. To create truly responsive designs, we must listen and learn from the local culture, the people, and the surroundings of a place, both current and historical. In turn, we communicate our solutions with an understanding that we all perceive our world differently, and that our approach must respond accordingly. The result will be a great project where excellent design, function and collaboration are integral.


Narrate Church

Church, when you hear the word what comes to mind?  We think about Gathering and Scattering.  We gather on Sundays to wrestle with topics like relationships, dating, marriage, parenting, vocation, money and the many emotions that come with living. Every Sunday we create experiences intended to engage and challenge – no matter what you believe about God, Jesus, and the Bible.

We’re honored to gather at Grandstreet Theatre in downtown Helena, located at 325 N. Park Ave. You can also learn more about The Grandstreet Theatre Company by visiting their website

Sunday gathering times are at 8.30am, 10am & 11.30am.

What should you expect at a Sunday experience?  Every week we start with a handful of songs led by our excellent band of musicians. After about 15 minutes of music, one of our pastors teaches for 35 minutes and we almost always conclude with another song.  Our gatherings last for 60 minutes. Great coffee and tea are free and available to everyone in attendance.

Narrate Kids provides age-appropriate, fun and engaging experiences for infants (6 weeks old) thru 5th graders.

Scattering is born of our calling and desire to matter, to narrate God’s story to our community by the way we serve. We’re serious about being the kind of the church that exists for the benefit of its non-members… to the extent that the most ardent critic of Christianity would be bummed if we suddenly ceased to exist. We seek to make this happen both by validating the opportunity to serve people in our everyday, organic lives as well as by coming together once every month to serve on a large-scale, community-wide level.  We call these community-serving events “Scattering” opportunities.

Sullivan Financial Group

Well before financial planning services diversified into the range of products and options that are now available, Peter Sullivan established himself as a leading consultant on risk management in Montana’s capital city of Helena. Active in business, civic and church affairs, Peter quickly became known as the man you could trust on insurance matters. In 1998 he was delighted to welcome one of his sons, Dan, into the business. Dan had enjoyed a fast-paced technology career with the Boeing Corp. in Seattle, but missed the personal relationships and four-season recreational opportunities that his hometown offered. Together, Peter and Dan expanded their firm into a comprehensive financial planning services firm that retains the personal values Peter instilled back in 1963 and embraces the technology and vitality that Dan brings to the business Sullivan Financial Group. In 2016, Peter retired from Sullivan Financial Group to share more time with his friends, children, grandchildren and community projects. He left satisfied the infrastructure to support his lovely clients was strong and enduring.
